At the same time israel has pledged continued action against the Palestinian guerrillas. This was made clear in a statement read to newsmen in Tel Aviv after an extraordinary meeting of Israel's cabinet.
In his statement, dr. Waldheim revealed that he was one of many people around the world who tried to secure the release of the Israeli hostages before the Munich bloodbath.
